Both will likely be in Terminal F. All gates in Philadelphia are connected inside security.
Hi I was wondering I am flying from Boston to PHL and connecting to Dominican Republic I have a 50min layover if that enough time to get to my connection? Im stressing...
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be flying american airlines
Thank you! feeling a little more relaxed, Ive heard horror stories
one more question about this
(hi, i will arrive from MSY to PHL on 5:24 PM 19-8-2017 at airplane AA2012 , i will have around 2 hours till my next flight , my next flight will be from PHL to LHR on 7:15 PM 19-8-2017with the airplane AA736.will i have the time to catch my flight?????)

will i have to take my bags and then re-check it again ???
also i will travel from LHR to CLT and my connection time is 1:45 min , so will i have time to catch my flight , and should i take my bags and re-check it in again and enter to the security and immigration????
You don't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia on the way to London. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On the return from London, that is when you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. You have enough time for both connections.
iam going from LHR to CLT and i have 7 hours connection time , i have United Arab Emirates passport and visa to only US , i don't have for London , could i go out for 1 or 2 hours outside the airport and come back again in these 7 hours????? and should i get a British visa too????
Am wanting some info, I would be very greatful for any advice,y flight leaves manchester at 11am I land in Philadelphia at 13.35 my connecting flight to Orlando leaves at 15.34, do I have enough time to catch this flight? And what happens to out bags do we have to collect and re check in?
Thanks in advance
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
Exactly the question I was going to ask.

Have a good trip..
I'm travelling from London to Baltimore/Washington via Philadelphia. I have 1hr 30mins between flights.
1. Is this enough time? (I arrive at T-A and depart at T-F)
2. will I have to go through immagration at Philidelpha or Baltimore?
3. Will I have to claim and recheck my luggage at Philadelphia?
That is just enough time. in Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.
Does Philadelphia offer any fast track system to get through security faster?
No.
fortunately my flight from the UK got in 30 mins early. I managed to get to my connection 20 mins before take off. If my previous flight had not have got in early, then I would have missed my connection. I deliberately didn't check any luggage to speed up the process, but even so 1h30 wasn't quite enough
hi, i will arrive from MSY to PHL on 5:24 PM 19-8-2017 at airplane AA2012 , i will have around 2 hours till my next flight , my next flight will be from PHL to LHR on 7:15 PM 19-8-2017with the airplane AA736.will i have the time to catch my flight?????
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Airline changed my layover to 39 minutes. I'm going to have to go from Terminal F to A on a Wednesday morning. Is it faster to take the shuttle bus or walk fast? And if I walk, do I have to go through security again?
You do not have to go through security again either way, but either way it will be very difficult. I'd try to run personally, but it's a long way.
I'm an American coming in on a flight from Spain - 2 1/2 hour layover before my flight to LAX. Is this enough time? Do I need to go through customs in PHL or not until LAX?
In Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
Hello, I am Canadian and I am in South Carolina visiting. I have a flight from Greenville to Montreal with one stop in Philadelphia but that stop is just 50minutes. Both flights are with American Airlines.Will I have enough time? Do I have to go through customs in Philadelphia?
That is enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Montreal.
Whats the best way to get from Terminal B to Terminal F on a Sunday at around 9:30 AM - Walking or Taking the Shuttle Please advise
If you are a fast walker, walking will probably be faster.
